An unknown error has occurred.  Check your url and connectionThis post will show you how to fix “An unknown error has occurred.  Check your URL and connection” within Downloader.

Downloader is the most popular application that allows side-loading APKs onto the Amazon Fire TV or Firestick.  This free application is used most notably when installing Kodi, Terrarium TV, and SET TV on the Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.

You may encounter the above error on the Fire TV 3 when attempting to download or install applications that aren’t available within the Amazon App store.  The reason for this error is because permissions aren’t granted for file access upon first installing the Downloader application.

If you don’t allow for Downloader to access files on your Fire TV, there is now way for the application to download and install applications.

If you are receiving this error, refer to the following screenshot guide for a quick fix.
